It's also not idea if you want to get a long way back to project a big image. The end result is the equipment gets used less.

    In our hall we have a ceiling mounted projector with a dedicated desktop PC. We've also got an AMX control panel which controls the projector, dvd/video player and the sound. The net result is a system so easy teachers and students can just go and use it without giving any notice. The equipment is probably used daily.
    Hehe the last place i worked in we had a similar system a ceiling mounted projector and a desktop in a big cabinet and we were still expected to "set it up" you just can't win sometimes!!

    No problem, you can get "whiteboard" paint for just this kind of thing.

    I recently had a quote done for a similar-sounding job. All our stuff had to come off a high ceiling and I priced up a 10m screen suitable for use as a backdrop for plays (just in case).

    £10k fitted (excluding electrics which we always have done separately). It's the cost of the scaffolding that starts hiking the price!
